Income support for individuals

The Government has temporarily expanded eligibility to income support payments and establishing a new, time-limited COVID-19 supplement to be paid at a rate of $250 per fortnight.  

This supplement can be accessed by employees who are stood down or lose employment, sole traders, self-employed, casual and contract workers who meet income tests. It also includes people caring for someone affected by the virus. 

Asset testing has been waivered, but income testing still applies. The waiting period has been waivered. There is an accelerated claim process when joining online.
